I agree that it's fun!

Our task must be to free ourselves...by widening our circle of compassion
to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.

I would certainly enjoy a peanut butter cookie today - or any day.

Hopefully, the world will not need my superpowers today and I can go about my business as a mild mannered reporter, enjoying some peanut butter cookies on my lunch break.

2 million calories - I better stay away from cupcakes like that!

I've got plenty of weeds that need to be pulled up in my garden beds, so that's an easy one for me today.

That would be a challenge for any calorie counter!

It certainly would! I'm not even sure how they calculated the calories in that giant cupcake.

Today in history
The U.S. Post Office Department ruled that children may not be sent by parcel post.

Wow - I had no idea that people/children were ever sent through the mail.

Apparently 'special deliveries' were cheaper than other forms of travel. Pony express was not available at the time.

I hope that all of those children arrived safely and that they weren't traumatized by the experience.
